Textile and Garment Manufacturers Association of Tanzania (TEGAMAT) to develop and support consuming industries urged the government to execute the Cotton to Clothing Strategy (2016-2020). The strategy advocates construction of local industry, especially the agro-processors.

TEGAMAT Vice President Sylvester Kazi in Dar es Salaam, speaking at the official launch of leather, sunflower oil, cotton to clothing strategies and value chain roadmap, said that the government should use the strategy to implement the second five year development plan.

The strategy is a fit all to the current industry policies of the SIDP 1996, IIDS 2012 and the EAC Industrialisation Policy 2014.

The common objectives of the policies are to fight poverty through increased productivity of cotton and its value addition to the point of making garments.

Mr Kazi said the objective can be achieved through the removal of administrative burdens, enhancing skills development, improving access to low cost financing and attracting investors, both local and foreign.

Tanzania to develop deep relation with the Indian Government has signed numerous bilateral agreements and MoUs including; the South-South Cooperation, Agreement on a Bilateral Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement ( BIPPA).
